Our award winning shop opened in September of 2008 inside the original animal drawing studio, at the eastern entrance to the Mackintosh building. This beautiful new space stocks a comprehensive range of souvenirs of the building, inspired by Mackintosh’s work, as well as beautiful and affordable contemporary products by a different group of GSA’s students, staff and alumni every year.
With a wide range of locals and visitors visiting the shop each day, there is something here for everyone – from cute colouring pencils, to bright button badges, from luxurious lambswool knits to perfect pearl necklaces, and from gem – like geometric jewellery to huggable hotdogs.
For locals looking to support home-grown talent and invest in their own unique piece of design, and visitors looking to take away an authentic momento of a fantastic visit to our iconic building, a trip to the GSA Shop should be the first stop on any shopping excursion this winter.
